Gronk Watch Thread

Recommended Posts

Gronk is still retired, but the rumors of him returning are getting stronger.

If Gronk did in fact returned, do you think the pop at Gillette when his name is called would be as loud as when Triple H returned in 2002?

Did you not see him in tears remembering the injuries? I think it's more likely Brady plays for 5 more years than it is Gronk comes back, to be honest.

The pop would cause an earthquake.

Sooo your saying very likely?

 

Honestly he again had a quote today about how he has thought about how quick he could get into game shape and how he could play right now. He doesn't sound like a dude who is going to stay retired. It's all conjecture but it will be fun to post quotes in here all season and stoke the hype flames lol

Eh, idk if he will ever play again. He keeps reiterating how painful football was and how he just wasn't up to it physically and emotionally anymore. And that's he had been considering retirement for a couple years already because he was so exhausted. Looking at his physique right now (he's very slender) there's no way he could get in football shape this year. Guess we will see if he changes his mind for next year but I just don't see it anymore.

Considering some of the injury information he's put out on the wire, I wouldn't want to come back either.  I think he might be just hyping up his CBD product by going into how healthy he feels now.  

He did say in a Schefter podcast that if TB12 came and rubbed CBD oil on him he'd feel a lot better.... which was... creepy.

Considering how New England has probably the weakest home crowd in all of sports when it comes to noise, Triple H easily takes the cake..

I admire the idea of this thread but I doubt Gronk returns unless it is to sell CBD oil. (Serious.)

Gotta think the odds of Gronk coming back are up with AB in tow.

Also, odds go up that a lot of guys decide to retire after going 19-0. McCourty bro's, Chung, Develin, Brady, Scarnecchia, Belichick even? Who knows.

Oldest roster in the 2019 NFL: Patriots.

That's just Brady throwing off the curve. He's 42, on a 53 man roster he increases the average age by  like 11 months.

Jason McCourty adds to this as well and perhaps Devlin and Gostkowski.  Is anyone else really that old?
